Wale Essentials

Wale Essentials

After grindin' on the DMV mixtape circuit, Wale's sound made its way to the ears of Mark Ronson who offered him a deal with his Allido imprint. The buzz continued with 2009's debut album, Attention Deficit, which cast him as an artist as comfortable embracing soul and spoken-word styles as straight-up spitting. A 2011 move to Rick Ross's Maybach Music Group saw Wale settling into his comfort zone and prospering as a free-spirited member of the roster. Embracing his experimental side, 2015's The Album About Nothing stands as hip-hop's first Seinfeld-inspired project.
